Radish is called Muji in Kashmir. Though radish or muji is not ground to make a paste-like regular chutney in this recipe it is still referred to as a chutney.
The favourite Kashmiri Chutney goes amazingly well with most dishes, snacks, and almost everything! Best served with tea time pakodas and Kashmiri Nadur Monji (lotus stem snack), this chutney will add a great taste to your lunch and dinner sprees.
